Getting A Ginko Tree
Q: I was reading in National Geographic about ancient trees. I would like to
get a ginkgo tree. Any advice?
A: Ginkgo is a great tree and there are a lot of varieties to choose from.
‘Princeton Sentry’ is columnar and grows relatively quickly. ‘Autumn Gold’
makes a great canopy for where you have a lot of space. Conversely, ‘Chase
Manhattan’ is a dwarf, shrub-like ginkgo that will only reach a height of about
six feet. Since ginkgo is a relatively slow growing tree, be sure you plant it
correctly to give it all the advantages. Tree planting details at
